Today in class two students who have been part of the Fill Your Cup tribe from inception were talking about a weight loss goal. One woman said, in the next 6 weeks she wanted to lose 8 lbs and so she got diet pills so she could still eat fast food cheeseburgers. The other replied, “You know you get one or the other, 8 lbs off or the whopper.”
It was so simple and clear and we all laughed at the obvious conclusion. You get thin or you get full, not both. So which one matters more?
The next element to the morning that made me smile is the tribe itself. Your community can help support your cause. Think about your family, friends, the classes you take – do they inspire a light living life? What would YOUR friends say in a similar situation? Are they going to tell you want is comfortable to hear, everyone deserves a Whopper sometimes hunnie or will they tell you the truth? 8 lbs vs. whopper – you decides who wins.
(PS it’s worth mentioning eventually, you will feel satisfied and satiated eating less – give yourself a month to adjust.)
